Oracle Hysterical is a collective of composers and performers who joyously celebrate the release of their latest album, Hecuba. The album will be released on National Sawdust Tracks, the in-house record label formerly known as VIA Records that presents a carefully curated selection of new music from bold voices.
Making up Oracle Hysterical are a preternaturally talented group of musicians: twin brothers Doug Balliett (double bass, viola da gamba) and Brad Balliett (bassoons), Majel Connery (vocals), Elliot Cole (vocals, harmonium), and Dylan Greene (percussion). Part band, part book club, Oracle combines eclectic musical influences with literary breadth, adapting great works of literature through the medium of song. The group has created hip-hoperas, art-rock song cycles, rap cantatas, and other genre-bending works all over America and Europe, collaborating with a variety of ensembles to cultivate a unique sound palette for each project.
